Second man accused in the fatal stabbing of a popular Calgary chef testifies

BY The Canadian Press, Mar 26, 2022 12:20 AM - REPORT AN ERROR

A second man accused in the fatal stabbing of a popular Calgary chef has testified there was never any plan to harm the victim.

Tommie Holloway has testified that he and Anthony Dodgson wanted toget into the chef's new restaurant to rob an adjacent cannabis shop.

The pair have pleaded not guilty to second-degree murder in the death of Christophe Herblin on March 14th, 2020.

Herblin's new restaurant was weeks away from opening and he was stabbed in its parking lot after a report of a break-in.

Dodgson is accused of stabbing Herblin, while the Crown alleges Holloway smashed the chef's car windows to lure him out of his business and into the parking lot.

Holloway says he was there but wasn't carrying a knife and there was no discussion about attacking the chef.

He says he smashed the windows of the chef's car hoping it would be towed away, so they could return the next day for the robbery.
